I’m new here, after battling for years with my dr I finally got a referral to a gynaecologist who thinks my symptoms are caused by endo ( really bad pain during ovulation, before and during period, spotting for sometimes a week before period comes, pain when using the toilet at certain times of the month, heavy periods, spotting after intercourse... to name a few)
He tried me on birth control pill for 3 months but it made very little difference just made bleeding and pain more unpredictable, I don’t do well on birth control (spotting, mood swings, nausea, insomnia.. the usual stuff!) I’ve had a copper coil fitted which they suggested removing and swapping for Mirena but they would have to do it during a hystoroscopy because I have no strings (cut off during loop excision for abnormal smear, last one clear so they’re not concerned about CC). In light of all of this the consultant reccomended a laparoscopy to see what’s going on and they will swap coils over while I’m under (yey)
I think I will be having a period when the lap is going to be performed will this matter? I was supposed to have it this past Thursday but it’s been moved to November I would have been bleeding then too!
Also can anybody tell me what to expect afterwards as I am feeling quite nervous!
Thanks in advance
